Subject: Well done!
The guy sounds a little like like me in the Navy!

The reader of this humorous story is excellent with a really neat British or Scotch or whatever it is accent, but wouldn't it be better if he read stories that took place in England rather than the Bronx? Anyway I like his style. My favorite chapter was the mermaid chapter. :)

Subject: Pretty funny
Good humor. Reminds me of the book, "Dere Mable", downloadable here, which is even funnier.
